  1. Looks like drew st is back

  2. Prop 47 gets no mention anywhere in the article. More thorough, in depth reporting from the LA Times.

  3. You should go see for yourself if they are back

  4. Re: Keeping dogs inside due to fireworks. Agreed, and wish my indoor cats did not need to go through the stress that the noise from illegal fireworks causes. As there will supposedly be higher police presence tonight, New Years Eve, perhaps LAPD and Sheriff’s Dep’t will keep eyes and ears open for people setting off illegal fireworks and fine and/or arrest them. Many people, like myself, feel that if this were done these incidents would decrease. In addition to the nerve-wracking noise, these fireworks can set palm trees on fire placing nearby structures in danger. Anyone setting off fireworks in this dry and windy weather has no common sense.

  5. There was a lot of fireworks in hlp new years
